Promoting qualities for a sturdy manhood and womanhood

"Mountaineering, in its broader sense, promotes the health and strength of the body, it teaches self-reliance, determination, presence of mind, necessity for individual thought and action, pride of accomplishment, fearlessness, endurance, helpful cooperation, loyalty, patriotism, the love of an unselfish freedom, and many other qualities that make for a sturdy manhood and womanhood."

- Roger Toll, former superintendent of Rocky Mountain National Park from 1921 to 1929
